I get the feeling this is a reprint given that a lot of stores near me suddenly have it in stock, but for those you that want to take a shot, go for it.

Fuck Gamestop. The fact they're charging $15 above MSRP of a brand new copy is ridiculous. They pulled off this shit with Xenoblade and they pulled this shit with Metroid. I'm not sure why Nintendo isn't making a big deal with Gamestop about this. For Wind Waker HD, they marked up the MSRP of the collector's edition because it was exclusive. The Xenoblade mishap was also pretty disgusting.

 

I can't believe Gamestop has a monopoly over this. They can just go up and request more copies, charge out of the ass for them, and try to play it off as if they always had them in the first place.

 

On a positive note, I believe on Black Friday Gamestop has been offering these reprinted games for less than $20.

To give credit to OP, new copies of the game are about $160. With this, you're essentially getting a brand new copy for the price of $65/50.

But Fuck Gamestop. They're wondering why they lose so many sales yet they pull of crap like this.

Well, I'm pretty sure this isn't a reprint, but GameStop did monopolize the copies of this particular game. But yeah, this is basically regular price with the usual CAG16 coupon code, which anyone could have done in the past year or so since they've had copies.

why is this game title so expensive? even the gamecube version. It's just like the Xenoblade and Metroid Trilogy ones.

It's Gamestop. Of course we can't. It'd be like having a PSN thread without one mention of PS+, or a Best Buy thread without mentioning GCU.

This game bored me to tears, which is a shame because I really like Path of radiance on Gamecube.

Stop wasting your money on videogames and sign up at prizerebel! Just do some simple and short surveys and in a couple of weeks time, you'll have enough credit to buy a $60 release! Or PSN/Xbox credit. Why pay money to fund your hoarding addiction when you can do it for freeeee!!!

Or Nintendo should make Wii titles downloadable in the eShop.

Yeah because every game that gamestop sells that is out of print is automatically always reprinted by them right?

I would LOVE for retail Wii games to be made downloadable on the eShop. Maybe $20 or so a piece? I wish there was a "legit" way to get Wi-Fi for these games again though. I would even pay $5 or $10 a year if it mean't I could race online Mario Kart Wii once again with all my friends. Thanks to the shutdown I've lost contact with most of them...

A week ago, there were 3-4 stores that showed copies in stock and now there's nearly 20 stores with copies in stock. Similar things happened when Xenoblade and MP Trilogy were reprinted.

Love the people living in denial.  Sure fellas, it's not a reprint.  They just had 1000s of copies sitting in a warehouse somewhere, not selling them, to artificially increase demand by making people think it was a rare game.  Or 1000s of people traded in copies all at once.  Or one person traded in 1000s of copies.

that's pretty cool of them if this is true. kudos to gamestop but hey why praise them for bring rare out of print titles we all want back to market when we can instead piss and moan about it because they aren't 5 dollars and instead are 50 or 60 dollars which is yes expensive but still noticeably cheaper than the used market sells them for and they are basically in like new condition

 

gamestop gets a cookie from me for this.

If you want to shill for Gamestop, don't do it here. Take a hike.

 

Not buying this from Gamestop. I find myself buying almost nothing from Gamestop as of late and I wondered why. Now I know.

According to Invizible, gamestop will be running B2G1 for Wii and DS games starting July 14th. So might as well just wait another day if you really want this game.

Guilty, what can I say it was the flip of a lifetime :-)

Wondering why I did such a long quote, didn't quote at all, or my post is riddled with typos? 90% of the time I'm on a mobile device and editing and formatting are too time consuming.

You don't need to explain yourself to douchebags.

 

About a year ago, I got a brand new copy of this game on eBay for $60. Sometimes people throw games up there not knowing the value. It had BIN or Best Offer. Someone already put in a pending offer, I just snatched it. Buyer tried to get to cute thinking he could snag it for $50 probably.

Yeah I had a feeling this game would be rare some day so I bought three copies (1 for play, 2 for keep sealed) of them at Sears liquidation sale. I think it was for $14.97 each. Also Walmart had this game on clearance too. Same price. If anybody interested, I willing to trade one of my sealed copies for a mint/perfect copy of Path of Radiance. Hit me up.
